Thanks to a gentle reminder from jb at The Hits Just Keep On Comin' that we’re getting a bit long in the tooth, it made me think of one of my favorite performers…Elvis.

Elvis Presley was arguably the most influential performer of the 20th Century. His glory days ranged from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, when he was dethroned by a British invasion spearheaded by a juggernaut called The Beatles. Elvis did it all. He was a rock star, a movie star, and even got the girl next door, Priscilla.

In memory of the 30th anniversary of his passing on August 16, I decided to honor his life and music with a show dedicated to The King of Rock and Roll.
